    Description

    We are an English couple living 3km outside Ostuni in Puglia, Southern Italy. We have a "trullo" villa nearby that we let to holiday makers, and our own house where there's always work to be done...

    We have a three dogs, four cats, seven+ goats, three+ pigs, ducks, chickens and bees. There are 5 acres of land at each property, with a total of 270 olive trees as well as other fruit and nut trees. We maintain the land organically and have many eco projects underway.

    We are practically self-sufficient with the food and energy that we produce. Cathy will be happy to talk food with you, and Keith self-sufficiency and energy projects. Depending on the season, cheese-making or sausage making could be in progress.

    The work that we are doing depends on the season and weather, and whichever project is at the top of the list!

    There are always the animals and veggies to look after.

    Constant activities include harvesting (walnuts, olives, fruit, almonds), weeding, pruning, strimming / weed-whacking, processing wood for the fire and for mulching.

    We also spend a lot of time maintaining and improving our home, a centuries old stone house. This may include painting, cleaning and small building works.
